About the Event
How many times have you seen the work of an Artist you admire and just longed to know HOW they do what they do?
Welcome to the Masterclass Sessions - a fortnightly 'draw-along' event featuring some of the best, most interesting, wildest and most skilled Life Drawing Artists out there today. The format is simple - we will be watching each artist at work, over zoom. You'll be able to see both the model and the artist's drawing board/tablet - you can just revel in it all, watch and soak all that wisdom in, or you can indulge and draw along at the same time. I will be on hand to ask our artists any questions you have and quite a few of my own! We'll be looking at materials, technique, inspiration and top tips to get us motivated! Please note, this is NOT a structured drawing class, this is a golden opportunity to watch and learn techniques from an incredible professional artist - a rare treat to lean over their shoulder as they work and soak it all in as well as listen to all that hard-earned experience & knowledge.
This week we will be basking in the glow of Artist Carol Smith's hard-earned experience & knowledge - we can't wait!
Carol's model for the evening: The glorious TBC
If you've got any questions you'd like to be asked during this session, you can either type them in the chat box on the day, or you can email us in advance and we'll make sure your question/s are asked: email@example.com
What to expect:
Once you've paid for this session, you will get an email from us with very clear and easy to follow instructions on how to join in - please don't forget to download the Zoom app or update it before the session - it is VERY IMPORTANT that you have the LATEST VERSION of Zoom for this session - you’ll also need a computer or tablet with good internet connection.
I (Jo Harris) will be compering the session, asking our artist questions about their materials, practice, influence, background etc. If you have any particular questions you would like me to ask, please feel free to email me beforehand (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can type them in the message box on the day. You will be able to see both the model and the page/tablet our artist is drawing on, so if you wanted to draw along you are most welcome to - or you can just watch and listen. During the session all microphones will be muted apart from mine and the artist's apart from in the breaks.
